Recent studies introduced intensity based structure tensor analysis to extract the myocardium structure from micro X-ray computed tomography (micro-CT) images. The implementation of this method is empirical and encounters difficulties in validating the results. In this study, we performed series of tests using structure tensor analysis on synthetic tissue wedges with predefined fibre orientations, optimised the parameters of the method and applied it to the micro-CT images of a rabbit… CONTINUE READING
